    Hillary Clinton plans to improve her relationship with the press for 2016, and her choice of Tom Nides as a top campaign official could be a good start. He is married to a top executive of CNN. Politico’s Mike Allen reports that Tom Nides, who was formerly Hillary Clinton’s deputy secretary of state, will be leaving his vice chairman position at Morgan Stanley for a top role in Clinton’s 2016 campaign. Unmentioned by Allen is that Nides is the longtime husband of Virginia Moseley, who has been the vice president and deputy Washington bureau chief for CNN since 2012.

    Pay no attention to the president behind the curtain. Instead we want you to focus entirely upon an utterly powerless prince that we are shining the bright lights upon. Despite the fact that other news outlets are bringing up the name of a certain former president we want you to look only at Prince Andrew of Great Britain. Got that? And if you haven't then we will overwhelm you with Prince Andrew mentions whenever we report on the Sex Fiend Island scandal. Such seems to be the attitude of CNN. Although other news outlets, such as Time, have not refrained...

    With its ratings at an all-time low and its journalistic ethics almost constantly under fire, left-wing CNN is once again conceding it can no longer compete as a serious news organization with the revelation Wednesday that the production of a game show is under way. Rumors surfaced in December that CNN chief Jeff Zucker might go this way. TV Newser confirmed the humiliating news today. ... 2014 might have been the worst year for CNN of any news outlet in recent memory. We’re only 21 days into the new year, but 2015 is already shaping up to be worse.

The new channel is expected to feature a new video series by British captive John Cantile, who has already made several videos for the Islamic State, and a daily news program, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz has reported.

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Facebook Inc said on Tuesday it has taken steps to clamp down on "hoaxes" and fake news stories that can spread like wildfire on its 1.35-billion member online social network. The company said it had introduced an option to allow Facebook users to flag a story as "purposefully fake or deceitful news" to reduce the distribution of news stories reported as hoaxes. Facebook said it will not remove fake news stories from its website. Instead, the company's algorithm, which determines how widely user posts are distributed, will take into account hoax reports.

CNN’s Daniel Burke appeared on the network this morning and was asked about the treatment of Muslims in France and if that contributed in any way to the terrorist attacks in Paris. Burke uncorked a stem-winding response that laid blame for the attack on France’s “secular history” and a failure to integrate religious minorities. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) “I think it’s kind of like what we saw in Ferguson. That this was a kind of, in...

The comment came as Blitzer was detailing the Islamic terrorist attack against the Charlie Hebdo office, which resulted in the deaths of 10 staff members and two police officers. Blitzer categorically slammed the attacks and said there was no justification for it. However, in detailing what Charlie Hebdo is known for, he added that, at times, they went “over the line” in their commentary. The attack on the office happened today and is currently believed to have been...

Back-to-back House Republican dramas in the final week of the year are the latest indication that many of the issues the GOP hoped to leave behind when they take full control of Congress next week — an unruly base and scandal-prone members — will continue to dog them in the new year, and might even kick off 2015 with an attempted coup on the Speakership. Though Boehner was successfully able to convince Rep. Michael Grimm to resign on Monday after pleading...

The problem with these statements isn't just that they are misleading -- 16 out of 29 witness statements said that Mike Brown had his hands up to surrender, in direct conflict with Darren Wilson's story; and police used a banned choke hold on Eric Garner, a measure that was known to cause death -- but that Charles Barkley is uniquely and astoundingly unqualified to discuss issues of race, law and police violence.

    Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) defended the release of the CIA enhanced interrogation report in a testy exchange with CNN today, arguing that ISIS “may seize” upon the report, “they may not.” Feinstein pushed for the release of the report in the waning days of her chairmanship before handing over the gavel to Republicans in the 114th Congress. “Look, there is no perfect time to release this report,” she said when asked about the potential risk to American lives because of its publication, as the White House warned Monday. “This began 12 years ago. We have worked for...

    On Sunday, CNN’s Inside Politics spent several minutes hyping the supposed headache Tea Partiers could give GOP leadership despite the Republican Party winning their 54th Senate seat following Saturday’s runoff in Louisiana. During the discussion, Robert Costa of The Washington Post insisted that Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is trying “to govern responsibly and he wants to set the party up for major gains in '16. And that started in 2014 by pushing back the Tea Party and it starts now by making sure that all the passions and eagerness in the House don't overtake the party.”

    Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told a French magazine that he has not seen any sign that U.S.-led airstrikes in his country have weakened ISIS, despite that campaign's efforts to defeat the Islamist extremist group. Syria is "running the ground battles against (ISIS), and we have noticed no change," al-Assad said in an interview with Paris Match, a portion of which was published online Wednesday.

    Looking back on the death and destruction in Ferguson, we can see the dirty hands of the media, especially CNN, now basking in the glow of (relatively) high ratings. Racial violence is a ratings booster and winner.

    Let’s not forget; to the media, Ferguson was NEVER about law enforcement, death, the black community, justice, injustice, inner city poverty, or whatever other code word that exemplifies what happened in that small Missouri town. To the media, it was all about ratings because they’ve had all their pieces in place for years. The decision to cover the Michael Brown shooting was not a result of its importance. It was a calculated decision by those in the media’s upper echelon to shed their white guilt and bring “attention” to what they consider long-simmering, racial injustice. When the shooting occurred, the...
